Minimally, you need to rebase all DLLs that will be loaded in the
application of interest. Practically, this means to rebase your entire

No, you seem to be a candidate for running rebase directly. Just create
a file containing the list of DLLs to rebase and pass it to rebase via
the "-T" option. You may want to investigate rebaseall to see how it
finds all of the installed Cygwin DLLs. Note that you have to pass all
DLLs to rebase in a single shot.
BTW, I would accept a patch to rebaseall that adds support for multiple
but optional "-T" options and a patch to rebase to accept multiple "-T"
